Sepia Saturday Statues at St Marys

Happy Saturday everyone and as it is Saturday time for a Sepia Saturday post for the challenge hosted by @old-guy-photos.
This is a challenge I enjoy joining I love how Sepia Images have a sort of timeless feel to them, that said I seldom did Sepia till this challenge started, but now I try and make it a regular thing for my Saturday morning post.

For this weeks post I will share a few of the Statues I saw at St Marys Church near Vernon Blvd and 49th Ave.
Starting with a shot of the three statues, which I take to be Mary and two angels

And for the last Shot of the other angel although most of the image is sepia, I had to keep the color for the stained glass windows in the background

There seems to be a lot of good energy exuded from these statues and the bricks, metal and other background pieces add lovely charm too. That stained glass kept colorful is a pleasant treat! Stained glass has such a fun appeal. Best luck in the contest!


Thanks for such a thoughtful and kind comment it really gave me a big smile to read it
I wasn't so sure what people would think with the splash of color for the stained glass windows, so good to know you like it ;)

I wasnt sure what people would think of the splash of color of the windows nice to know you like it

These are perfect images for sepia, and I love the stained glass color splash. Well done! !tipuvote
